Group Housing and Calf Autofeeder Systems
At the Western Dairy Management Conference, February 28-March 2, 2017 in Reno, NV, Dr. James, K. Machado and A. Dietrich presented a paper, "Group Housing Systems for Calves, Facilities, Equipment, Protocols and Personnel."
Of special interest to me was the section "Computer controlled automatic calf feeding systems." There is a good section "General recommendations and features of calf autofeeder systems."
In addition, there is a 9-point summary of risk factors for disease in autofeeder systems.
If you have an interest in autofeeder management this is good resource.
